One of the BBC’s most famous presenters has admitted to pursuing a “liberal agenda” on prime-time late-night TV.
One of the BBC’s most prominent talents, Graham Norton, has admitted to pursuing a “liberal agenda” on his prime-time talk show, which airs regularly on the BBC’s state broadcaster on Friday nights.
Despite being asked to remain politically neutral, the broadcaster has long been under fire for its left-wing leanings, with the group often accused of overemphasizing racial and transgender diversity in its hiring process.
in a interview and sunday timesNorton admits that his own show has a “liberal agenda,” although proving such an agenda helps to better “reflect” the world we live in.
“I guess it’s a liberal agenda, but it doesn’t seem very liberating to bring viewers back to themselves unless you just want to see yourself staring at you on TV,” Norton told the publication.
“There was a time when you were desperately looking for a non-white actor that audiences would recognise,” the Irishman, originally from County Cork, continued. “That’s not the case anymore. Anything a guest does is popular enough to put them on the couch, and you want the world to reflect.”

The TV presenter’s admission that his show promotes a “liberal agenda” is only the latest time the BBC’s left-wing bias has been exposed, the state broadcaster has previously been accused of in its planning and recruitment plans.
The BBC, for example, has long effectively banned white people from certain positions at the broadcaster, publicly posting job listings that describe itself as someone from a “Black, Asian and Non-White Ethnic Minority” (BAME) background.
Meanwhile, a report into the UK TV industry as a whole found that ethnic and sexual minorities were disproportionately represented on screen, with BAME actors making up 23 per cent of TV roles. This is despite the fact that the BAME population in the UK is about 14%.

The practice has now sparked accusations that broadcasters are “disappearing women” from unhappy feminists.
“The BBC has now ‘disappeared’ women as a gender class in favour of monitoring ‘gender identity’,” a senior whistleblower for the group – which has reportedly called the BBC “serious sexist” – reported, The company’s recruitment practices.
